and a power outage. cbs 5 reporter cate caugiran is in san francisco where power in the subway is back on. that's good news for commuters. >> reporter: i'm sure. we actually were talking to a commuter and no kidding as i was trying to explain the situation, that j line pulled up and then the driver said nope, we're headed in town or downtown. so yes, it is a sigh of relief for morning commuters. everything should be free- flowing on the muni trains. but this all started after again that storm damage that you mentioned earlier. a power outage was caused. the electrical problem happened as commuters were headed home last night. this morning crews said it was a blown transformer on van ness that started this whole muni madness. >> apparently, it was damaged with water damage from yesterday [ indiscernible ] was down in the subway and we waited and waited and they never tell you how long it's going to be. >> reporter: we want to make note, this was ahead of schedule. originally the n and j lines were supposed to be rerouted this morning but, of course, crews were able to fix it ahead

live look. this is a view from our roof camera on the top of the cbs 5 headquarters at broadway and battery. so right now the big issue is the metering lights. we talked to caltrans and they are hoping to get the metering lights on a backup system so they may actually be able to turn on the metering lights. we are just not sure at this point. but again, those metering lights control the volume of traffic that gets on the upper deck during the commute so it could be an interesting drive into san francisco if they can't get those on. in the meantime, slight delays right now approaching the bay bridge toll plaza. elsewhere, let's go to our dublin cam. live look at westbound 580 approaching 680. this is a big problem all morning. all lanes remain shut down in that westbound 580 drive from hopyard all the way towards 680. some commuters are able to squeeze by using the shoulder. but let's check out our maps. look at the drive time. it can't even be calculated at this point. we know it is super heavy from the livermore valley all the way towards the dublin- pleasanton area. but again, at
